In the video footage, the character is seen pondering about the woman he loves.

Dulquer was praised by director Hanu for putting in "sheer hard work" on the film. “Happy Birthday Ram a.k.a. @dulQuer! You’ve poured life into this character with your sheer hardwork. May you shine brighter!,” his tweet read.
